Pruning Crape (Crepe) Myrtle

Asked September 15, 2016, 12:45 PM EDT

I have a very bushy CM that has been beaten by summer storm winds: can I risk pruning it back now or should I wait until early spring?

You can prune any broken or damaged branches but overall pruning should be reserved for spring. Hope this is helpful.
